I finished the Jaywalkers last night. They are the first pair of socks that I made that fit perfectly. I couldn't wear them for very long as it is extemely warm and humid here. Nothing compared to weeks past, but it is definately bare foot weather!
I think my next pair will be with the Trekking XXL. I know we don't have it in the shop, but I feel that I have to give it a test drive and see what all the hype has been about. I am going to Portugal next week, so I can take them on a 'trek along'. Debating on what to do with them. I hate the idea of doing a sock entirely in rib, but I think due to the nature of the yarn, it should be simple. Maybe an interesting rib at the top, then just stockinette. I have to give it a think. I am loving the magic loop thing, and got several sizes that are unavailable here while I was in CT, so might have to give those a go as well.
I have yet to do anymore work on the silk vee. I have to get back to that one. I am awaiting the arrival of the new Interweave Knits, which I have been told will be here next week. Vogue Knitting is also due in at the end of the month, and I heard that there is a great pattern by Cat Bordhi for socks. I am also pondering a lace project. I have never really tried it, but am having trouble finding a pattern that I think I would actually wear. I think I would prefer something more along the lines of a rectangle. Will have to scour the books in the shop tomorrow.
Here is a really interesting project that Mary Lou did with the Feza. I was really chuffed that she dedicated a post on her blog to me. I also love the mobius! She told me that she has a different way of casting it on that isn't as hard on the wrists. We may have to get her into the shop to teach a workshop on that one!
I was going through the photos of the trip, and found this one. It makes me want to go back to the beach. I'll leave you with this one, how relaxing!
